I have a passionate appreciation of the power and beauty of language. I am well-traveled, and I am very interested in helping others increase their opportunities and/or learn to share my love of language and literature. Immigrants are of special interest to me, and I enjoy helping them improve their language skills. I currently teach English Language Literature, including American short stories, business communication and ESL. I teach to native and immigrant alike, and I am particularly strong in grammar and writing skills. Critical thinking and persuasion are an important part of my focus in writing skills.
